I liked this bood quite a bit It was filled with great content and a great overall story There was also well used language and discription that enhance the enjoyment of the story I think that anyone would easily enjoy this story It was also filled with old Roman, Greek, and Estuscan facts and beliefs That all just makes the story all the better. This was really good It was just a bit too easy for me I know Mr Callaway chose this book because of our visiting author, but still If I was 8 9 years old, I probably would have liked it a bit. The Poisoned Honey Cake is a fun and lively introduction to historical fiction and certainly an accessible text for a younger reading audience I look forward to meeting the author in two weeks. Loved this book Read my full review at Loved this book Read my full review at The mystery was entertaining My class seemed to enjoy it, and it provided a great run up to Caroline Lawrence s visit in a couple of weeks. A really good book, and it was really interesting.
